Seeing as it's the long off-season, I thought it'd be interesting to see how we all became Giant fans. Below I put a poll asking where did you become a Giants fan, meaning where did you live when you made the commitment. I'm not sure if this is clear, but just in case, I'll put an example.
I've lived in New Jersey my whole life, so it's only obvious I became a Giants fan. Some people maybe became a fan somewhere else, say Great Britain because they saw them on TV or radio or something. So I hope that's clear.
So I've been a Giants fan my whole life. My Mom's a Giants fan and my dad's a Giants fan (possibly also a closet Jets fan, but we don't hold that against him). My mom's always lived in Bergen County, while my dad lived in the city while he was young before moving to Connecticut. All of my Grandparents on both sides are giants fans, and pretty much everyone else in my family are a Giants fan. However, I didn't become a Fan, with a capital F, until recently. Sure I went to the occassional game, and watched it occassionally on TV, but I didn't really follow the team and know if it was a good team or not. Case in point, I knew we were in the Superbowl in 2000, but never actually knew the result until recently. It'd have probably have been better without that knowledge. I didn't become a Fan until 2007. Pretty lucky time to be a Fan, eh? I followed the team every Sunday that season for the first time in my life. I loved it. Even the crappy games, I was glad to be a Giants fan. I was rewarded that year with the unimaginable. Since than, I've bled Big Blue, and couldn't be happier.
I'm sure we all have great stories to share, and would like to hear them.
